SLCPD Annual Halloween Fun Fest Returns to PSB Plaza
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department’s annual Halloween Fun Fest returned to the Public Safety Building plaza on Friday, October 28th.
The free community event brought spooks and smiles to children of all ages.
“After two years of navigating the pandemic, it’s great to have our Halloween Fun Fest back on the plaza,” said Chief Mike Brown. “This would not be a success without the support of our community. Getting out and connecting with our community members builds trust and strengthens relationships, which is a commitment of our police department.”
Families danced along to music provided by Community Outreach DJ, Officer Wilson Silva, as they collected tricks and treats at the decorated booths.
On display were booths for families to meet with police officers, professional staff, crime lab, firefighters, and a variety of other city departments and community partners.
The Salt Lake City Fire Department dropped pumpkins from the top of a ladder truck during the festival.
Creepy, crawling insects with The Bug Lady, Christy Bills from the Natural History Museum of Utah were also on display.
A train ride operated by an SLCPD Hazardous Devices Unit (HDU) detective and robot brought thrills to everyone.
The SLCPD recognizes the women and men of the department who organized the fun fest, along with the following sponsors and participants:
The SLCPD reminds community members to have a fun but safe Halloween – trick-or-treat in groups, wear reflective clothing or use a flashlight, be careful crossing the street, visit familiar neighborhoods, and have a plan. If you choose to drink alcohol, please be responsible – designate a sober driver or use rideshare services.
Several photos taken during the fun fest are being released.
